I wanted to Ask you guys how you Play The game
Hi everyone i just Saw Tom97Hd video on it and it seems pretty legit. Apparently in one of the files there is a f1 2019 features palceholder to suggest there is gonna be a F1 2019 DLC for f1 2018 and the reason for it because of the new gen consoles. Its been 5 years since xbox one and ps4 was released its coming to a point where Ps5 will be released soon in next year or so, so they are trying to avoid what they did with f1 2014 and f1 2015 by being a step ahead of themselves. As well trying to keep the game release more close to the start of the season like fifa, motogp,Nba ect. Think its a pretty cool idea seeing that the game is released at a bit of weird time half way through the season, and think the f1 2018 game is good enough to last another 2 years if they fix bugs and have a decent 2019 update. As well they are apparently working on a new engine for the 2020 or 2021 season so its gives them more time work on it.
Just wanted to express my growing frustration with the state of F1 2018.
I'm up to my 5th league race in a row now where the game has had major glitches which have resulted in a ruined race.
Race 1: De-synced car took me out in turn 1
Race 2: Crashed car became stranded in the middle of the track on the racing line and was never cleared.
Race 3: Was unable to load a car setup, had to exit session and rejoin. THEN game stuck in full course yellow, no overtaking allowed. Had to restart session.
Race 4: Game stuck in full course yellow, no overtaking allowed. had to restart session.
Race 5: Received a 5 second stop go penalty for an illegal overtake when I never overtook the car in question. Couldn't slow down to let a car past that was already in front of me. Rest of the race was completely out of sync for a number of racers.
I understand and appreciate that "it's just a game", but for a lot of us who race competitively, it's incredibly frustrating when we spend many hours practicing during the week to improve out lap times, qualify well and then have our race ruined by these glitches.
For me personally, I sold a real life track-car and spent in excess of $6000 on my sim racing rig (and $10,000 on the PC that runs it) because real life racing was no longer practical for me with a young family. I expected this would be something i could enjoy in the evenings once the kids were asleep. It's fun to take it seriously and competitively for some of us.
This is an officially licenced F1 product with exclusive rights to much of the content used in the game, and this simply is not good enough. I have played many other racing games competitively dating back to the early 2000s (MSN Gaming Zone) and NEVER had these problems with any of them.
The core of the game is fantastic, but it is let down by all these frustrating bugs and glitches.
Please put the time and effort in to creating a game that actually works before it's released, or hand the rights over to another developer who can.
